okay, i really hope this is okay...i'm posting this for my sister, alleycat.rm.  she had to work tonight and we don't have internet access, so i said i'd go over to our dad's and post it for her.  she really wanted to get this posted so i'm sorry if it's not okay! 

all right...when i told her about this challenge, the first thing she said (and what i thought of also) was "oooh...a craft store!!  NO!!  a craft ROOM!!"  so that's what she did.  She took a bunch of scraps and stuff we had laying around the apartment and this is what she came up with:

of course, it had to be done in pink.  she's especially proud of the quilt on the bed (which is made out of a mini cereal box)....now she wants to make a real quilt with those fabrics!  Roll Eyes  and notice the "Craftster Rocks" poster. <shameless promotion>  Wink
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v412/kendaljay/House%20Stuff%20and%20Kitties/AllisonDiorama.jpg

she also wanted to put some things in there that she had learned on Craftster, so she made a clock out of a bottle cap and the little purple dress was one she had made a long time ago for a card swap.

and of course the knitting on the bed and the little painted hatboxes. 
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v412/kendaljay/House%20Stuff%20and%20Kitties/AllisonDiorama3.jpg

the only thing it doesn't have that she wanted was a little kitten sitting on the bed.  because craftsterers are notorious for having cute little pets!! Cheesy

Okay, i think that's all she wanted me to say. enjoy!  Smiley

**Edited:  oh! i forgot to say that it is made out of a shoe box on it's side and sitting in the lid, then spraypainted white.  and the disco super ball was my idea!  Wink

OMG I Love it!  I was going to try to do an entry for this contest, and it was going to be MY craft room!  But I didn't have the time.  This came out wonderfully!  I like the idea of adding actual craftster projects.  Nice job!

It looks like a magazine cut out?  I think, lol.

It's so awesome.  The colors are great... and the detail with the flip flops, rug, accessories & wall decor is too fun.  Ohh..and the yard stick!  Fab.. Kudos to your sister!

awww...she is going to be soooo glad ya'll like it!!  Cheesy  the flip flops are a scrapbooking sticker type thing.  the sewing machine is a cutout from a magazine, she was worried that it would look hugemongous in the room, but that was all she could find.  and she'll be glad that you got that the spool of thread was supposed to be a stool.  she was worrried about that too.  anyway, thanks for the comments!  she should be on here in about an hour, and i'm sure she'll have stuff to say too.  Cheesy

lol...yeah that's all right!  Cheesy  she has it sitting on her desk right now and everytime she looks at it she says "wow i did a good job."  Roll Eyes  and i've talked her out of making a lifesize quilt to match that one. <especially since i just bought her a brand new green polka dot quilt!!>

That's fantastic!!! It reminds me of these little houses I used to build out of cardboard boxes when I was a kid...I called them 'Cat Houses' (without really knowing what that meant) because I built them for these two rubber cats I owned. I made them beds and clocks and a fire place...one time even a litter box I filled with real dirt. It was a lot of fun!

Oh my goodness.  Cheesy I love little tiny dioramas like this. Tiny, minature versions of things are always more inspiring to me than their larger counterparts. Great job on the bed. And the wall art. What fun!
